Sand, Sea Shells, and a Surprise Proposal

Children, Couples, Engagement, Family, Portraits

This was SUCH a fun day for so many reasons! My friends Brittany and Andrew decided it was time their son, Desmond, make his first trip to the beach! Plus, this was Father’s Day of 2016 so it was a special way for this little family to spend the morning. Desmond loved the sand and had a blast collecting little beach treasures like sticks and shells. While Desmond was busy exploring, Andrew had a different mission:

The night before, Andrew had contacted me and told me he had a plan for this day – to PROPOSE to Brittany! I basically almost peed my pants with excitement! I know how perfect these two are together and have seen them go through ups and downs and always come out the other side stronger. I’ve seen them go through the journey of pregnancy, birth, and parenthood and just know they are meant to be together ’til the end and beyond! Needless to say, I was SO ready to take on the task of capturing this proposal on camera!

Brittany had brought a picture frame to the beach to use as a photo prop which was the perfect way to grab some photos of just Brittany and Andrew down by the water. Little Des played beside me in the sand while Andrew went and positioned himself to pop the question! I could ramble on but it’s so much better to see the story play out in photos:

Such a perfect family and a perfect day! Brittany was in shock but then cracked everyone up when she jumped into Andrew’s arms with joy! She was tickled that Andrew selflessly used his Father’s Day of all days to propose! I wonder if Des will be the ring bearer 😉 I better get an invite to your wedding haha – can’t wait to see you two tie the knot! Will be a day to remember for sure, just like this one! Could not be more honored to have been there for this moment! Love you guys ❤
